Mary is placed on administrative leave pending the investigation of the FBI's raid on her house at the conclusion of the previous season. (The FBI unsuccessfully searched Mary's house for the drugs that her sister Brandi was holding for Brandi's boyfriend, Chuck.) While on leave, Mary's cases are given to Marshall, but Mary is allowed to work unofficially -- as Marshall's deputy -- when one of Mary's witnesses, who had been taken into the program 17 years earlier, dies under mysterious circumstances.

Did You Know?


During Mary's breakdown, when she storms out of the office, and across the street, shes walking northeast from the red brick building that supposedly houses the US Marshal's office. The rail yard that she and Marshall end up in, however is several miles southwest of the section of downtown that they started in. Assuming she continued walking straight, or at least in the same general direction after they crossed the street, they would have ended up far from that rail yard. See more »


Mary Shannon: You're putting Marshall in charge of an investigation into the death of my witness?
Stan McQueen: Well, um... Yeah. But I was thinking maybe you could help him out. In a strictly unofficial, advisory capacity, of course. Then as soon as you're taken off administrative leave, it's all yours.
Mary Shannon: So I'll be Marshall's helper? Taking orders from him?
Stan McQueen: Well, I don't know that I'd characterize it as his helper. I... I would...
Mary Shannon: Oh, hell yes.
[Mary and Stan hang up]
Marshall Mann: How'd she take it? Mad? Really mad? Fit to be tied ...

In Plain Sight is now common among the new cable and even network. They have shortened their season from the usual 22 to 13 episodes. The down side is the longer the wait makes you want to look elsewhere. Mary Shannon and her partner, Marshall, are back in tow. They work well as a team. If Mary Shannon didn't look attractive, would the men tolerate her as much? Probably not, she's tough and you have to be working in a man's world with men mostly. At home, she is really the masculine authority in her household with her mother, Jinx, played well by Lesley Ann Warren and her troublesome sister, Brandi. No wonder, she prefers her job that allows her to get away with such impossible behavior. Now if I had acted that way, I would be fired immediately but I don't. As a woman, I have to conform and worry that inappropriate behavior won't get me fired especially now. I see Mary McCormack's face everywhere from the train to New York City, the posters on the wall, and the New York Times. I like Mary McCormack and always have. I wish her well in her success and know that it won't go to her head. Despite that she plays a tough talking government agent, she remains feminine in nature with her emotions. She had a tough season last year at home and at work. I'm not one for cop shows anymore. There too many of them and they are all beginning to look alike after awhile. In Plain Sight is a little different because of Mary's tough character who shows she's boss. That's every woman's fantasy in a way in a men's world. She doesn't take being mistreated. For women, it's an hour to escape and allow ourselves to live vicariously through her.
